Arduino Speed Vest

Brady Clark and Mykle Hansen made this nifty DIY speed vest for bikers that displays a light-up readout of the wearer’s speed. The vest works thanks to an Arduino open source computer, wheel speed sensor, nine-volt battery, and electroluminescent display. Hansen and Clark describe the speed vest as a “bicycle safety device and advocacy tool.” I don’t really see how ...

Arduino Is The Next-Gen Gaming Platform

We’ve seen a lot of neat stuff made with the Arduino processor, like that Mad Hatter top hat or the gigantic keyboard. With the infinite possibilities the Arduino offers, where are all the games made for this development platform? Enter the ArduGame, a hand held device that runs a small game that has yet to be named. Using an OLED ...

Credit Card Scans From Your Pocketed Arduino

Who would’ve thought all it took is an Arduino, a standard magnetic stripe reader, a display and a little code to be able to read the data stored on magnetic stripe cards such as your VISA card.  I can’t begin to imagine how this DIY provided by Instructables could be abused.  No one is doing fraudulent things with an Arduino ...

Arduino KITT

Found on Youtube, here’s a cool video of a guy who used 18 LEDs and an Arduino to fade the lights on a project case. The end result? A machine looking very similar to Knight Rider’s KITT. If you want to build your own, the creator, John Tokash, has included a HOWTO and Arduino code on his website. Get buildin’, ...

My First Arduino Project

So I got my very first Arduino in the mail two nights ago. In less than one day, I was able to create a simple program and circuit that plays back any set of musical notes I want. I can then modify pitch, frequency and delay time all with potentiometers I have rigged up to the Arduino. Coding is extremely ...

Arduino Lilypad: Oversized Robotic Arm Directs Plants To Window

Your house plants are withering. You have two options: put them out in the sun or build a gigantic robotic arm that takes up half of your living space. Lively plants at the cost of sleeping in the bathtub doesn’t sound too bad either. The Bartlett School of Architecture showcased their “Experiments in Time” exhibit, which included this steel monstrosity ...

Trip Out: DIY Arduino POV Device

Who doesn’t love a good POV device? Watching designs come out of spinning lights is always a pleasure for people of all ages. Now you can build one on the cheap and with an Arduino if you own one. Materials are relatively easy to acquire and the results look decent. Link (via)

DIY: Ard-e The Arduino Robot

Robotics can be an expensive hobby but cheap robot projects do exist. Instructables member Imadami has made a DIY robot with an Arduino brain that you can build yourself for under a hundred dollars. This remote controlled robot is stocked with a pan and tilt system that could be used to aim a camera or even a USB missile launcher ...

Control Your Arduino With A TV Remote

We’ve got a bad case of Arduino fever over here at Gearfuse and some homebrew projects are our only cure! That aside, you can now use a code library to use a universal television remote to control your Arduino-based project. The official word: The library implements the NEC IR protocol, so set up the universal remote for any NEC device ...
